Deciding on a job upon graduation usually takes a ton of deliberation. eBay and the FFP made it incredibly easy. The managers and HR team took a personal interest to show us how great of a company eBay is and how I can make an impact despite being recent college graduate. The Finance Future Program (FFP) role provides me the opportunity to challenge myself with rotations across the Finance org that give insight to many parts of the business. This is a huge opportunity to start my career in finance and is why it was so easy to choose to join the FPP in August of 2020.

I’m excited to get the chance to start my career off at eBay because of the amazing finance rotational program as well as the opportunity eBay provides to work in e-commerce. The FFP program provides amazing exposure to many parts of this complex business and the chance to learn at a fast-pace that is virtually unmatched in many other recent college graduate positions. In addition to that, eBay is a world-wide company that develops and maintains software that is cutting edge across the industry.

In my first rotation, I am working on the Corporate FP&A team. This rotation is unique because it requires an understanding of the entire business and how the larger “movers” work together and contribute to the financial statements. Understanding how these areas of the business work together will provide great perspective while at a more granular level in future rotations.

A surprising bit about working for eBay is just how committed the employees all are to helping each other grow. I know that I can reach out to anyone on or off my team and receive the help I need. People are willing to set up time to meet with me and provide the help and assistance if they can. People are also willing to help me find the answer if they can’t supply it themselves. It really is a great environment to be in. At the end of the day, we are all working together and helping each other, and the company succeed.

My advice would be to have confidence in yourself and what you know because no one expects someone just starting out their career to have it all figured out. Bring a great attitude and a strong sense of diligence and you will do well in the role, no matter what specific classes you may or may not have taken during undergrad. I am excited to be a member of eBay’s FFP program and look forward to where it leads me in my career.

I am proud to work at eBay: A company that empowers people and brings them together to create opportunity and joy.

When I joined eBay back in 2012, I had only used the site a handful of times. But I had learned from others who already worked here that the culture at eBay was spectacular. This is what really drew me to eBay. Of all the teams and organizations I have been in at eBay over the years I have always enjoyed and appreciated the same thing: the people I work with. I feel truly blessed to be able to work with such amazing and talented people in a company as great as eBay.

I enjoy being a part of the eBay family, what I think sets eBay apart from other online retail marketplaces is our company’s DNA (i.e. our Purpose, Beliefs, Vision, and our role in people’s lives). eBay doesn’t compete with our sellers; we are not here to just collect our fee and move on. Rather, we exist to empower people and create economic opportunity for all.

Let me start by telling you about my career path. I started my career off in Revenue Accounting outside of eBay. When I had an opportunity to join eBay, I jumped at it. I have been able to have a diverse career with various roles: Billing, 1.0 Payment Vendor Management, Global Collections, and now Finance Leadership Development Program (FLDP). Being in the Financial Leadership Development (FLDP) program, I am rotating between different Finance roles every 6 months. I have had two rotations, 1st North America FP&A and 2nd Corporate FP&A. In my current rotation with the Corporate FP&A team. We provide key reporting and financials to the ELT and assist the Investor Relations team in preparation for each quarterly earnings release. One of the more tangible impacts, I believe, that I have made to the eBay experience was being able to proofread the CFO, CEO scripts as well as the earnings presentation. It is a great feeling when you hear your changes being read aloud during the earnings call or you see your recommendations being used in the presentation. It really hits home that I’m making an impact and can see it.

On a personal note, outside of work, my biggest driver is my family. Truly, my family is what drives me to be my best self both on and off the job. Working from home during the pandemic has been challenging, but it has also given me the opportunity to spend time with my family outside of just evenings and weekends.

I love how eBay has been a driver in giving items renewed life and value through resale of pre-owned items, encouraging circular commerce and driving environmental impact.

I joined eBay in 2013. The idea of working for a purpose driven company which could empower small entrepreneurs around the world to start and scale a business globally is amazing is what made me want to work at eBay. eBay is one of the pioneers of the e-commerce industry and an iconic brand. I was then very impressed by the people I met as part of the interview process, especially the diversity of profiles, the authenticity of leaders and the general sense of integrity. I also felt energized by the genuine commitment to people’s development as well as the dynamic environment and thought eBay would bring exciting career opportunities! Also, I had recently relocated to Europe after a few years in California: joining eBay was an opportunity to continue to work in a multinational technology environment while being based in Europe.

In my role, I work on financial planning eBay’s Advertising platform. Advertising is one of eBay’s strategic priorities and as Head of Global Advertising finance I partner with the Advertising business team to develop a financial plan designed to enable brands and sellers to efficiently connect with the shoppers on eBay, leveraging technology.

Always starting with buyer and seller experience which is at the heart of everything we do at eBay, I lead the Advertising finance end to end operations, bringing financial and performance insight to drive business outcome, optimize investment and ultimately set the Ads business for success. I really enjoy being closely connected and integrated to Ads Business teams, from Product Engineers to Sales and Marketing in the regions, and to collaborate with other Business Units finance teams globally.

One of the most rewarding part of my job is people’s development and coaching: I work very closely with a diverse team of Financial Analysts based in California, China and Europe, closely integrated to regional markets.

A little bit about me, my career path and how I got here. When I joined eBay, my aspiration was to experiment in different areas of the finance function to become a “well-rounded” finance professional. Coming from a Public Accounting and Consulting background, I had the opportunity to expand my skills set step by step, from Technical Accounting, Controllership, also Business Analytics. Finally, in my current role, I am focusing on Financial Planning & Analysis and business partnering with Advertising.

I found eBay’s culture and leadership extremely supportive to employee’s development, open to take some risks and offer opportunities for growth in new areas, and this is how I think about people’s development in my team as well. One of the things I appreciate the most is to be able to significantly shape each and every role I had with eBay to drive impact and expand my skills set, in a dynamic environment encouraging continuous improvements.

What sets eBay apart from other online retail marketplaces is, eBay is the very embodiment of a Marketplaces: As a buyer, the breadth of inventory you can find is unique including new and used item, and it also allows you to choose who to purchase from, from local small entrepreneur to larger global seller. eBay is committed to sustainable commerce: whether it is by extending the line of products through resale of pre-owned and refurbished items or by favoring sustainable practices in e-commerce. eBay is about so many success stories of entrepreneurs from less-advantaged communities around the world who managed to grow a business and get access to a global base of buyer enthusiasts!

eBay’s values and its commitment to give back to the community resonated with me: the way eBay for Charity became one of the largest fundraising platform and raised more than $1B to date is inspiring!
